Serpentine race report December 2018

With so many people in the club running in so many different events, in can be hard to keep track of who is doing what.  I'm therefore grateful for Serpentine coach David Chalfen, for providing me with what I hope to be the first of a regular roundup.  It is not meant to be comprehensive, but it should highlight just some of the many excellent performances from those racing in the red and gold in recent weeks.

We will have 650+ runners entered for the Start Fitness New Year's Day 10k and 3k and really want to put a great event on for them, so if you can spare some time to help on 1 January 2018 in Hyde Park, please sign up. The race starts at a sociable time, so wouldn’t require too much of an early start. This is your opportunity to give something back to the club and the running community.
